Millie Joins Team GB in Rio

Nupafeed event rider, Millie Dumas will join 39 young athletes and coaches selected for the The British Olympic Association’s Ambition Programme for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The Ambition Programme works with the sporting national governing bodies to offer athletes and coaches, who aspire to compete at Tokyo 2020, a unique opportunity to have an inside experience of an Olympic Games.

The group will travel to Brazil next month and visit the world class facilities of Team GB’s preparation camp in Belo Horizonte before flying down to Rio to visit the Olympic Village. At London 2012, 40% of Team GBs Gold Medallists came from first-time Olympians, including double dressage gold from Charlotte Dujardin and shooting gold from Peter Wilson, who both experienced Beijing 2008 through the Ambition Programme.
